As an ivy-league ER doctor who eats double shifts for breakfast (and lunch…and dinner), Blake Fisher has little appetite for anything other than work. Being on the staff at Brenstville Hospital means taking care of people, a need Blake understands all too well from losing his brother to cystic fibrosis eight years ago. When he’s asked to coordinate a carnival fundraiser for the cause, he jumps at the chance to help others with the disease…until it lands him side by side with the one woman he never thought he’d see again: his ex-fiancée.
Streetwise and rough around the edges, Jules Shaw is no stranger to earning a living through hard work. But when her job as the restaurant manager of Mac’s Diner puts her shoulder to really broad shoulder with Blake Fisher, she nearly balks. She’d rather dodge and deflect than admit the real reason she broke things off, but the catering contract for the carnival means big business for Mac’s, and feeding people is Jules’s lifeblood.
As Blake and Jules join reluctant forces, they quickly rediscover the spark between them. But the possibility of a future together hinges on coming clean about the past, with potentially devastating consequences. Can Blake and Jules overcome their drastically different backgrounds and learn to love again, or will they always be outside the lines?
I rated Outside The Lines with FOUR AND ONE HALF LEAVES! Before you read this book, make sure you have a bunch of sweet and sticky desserts on hand. This book will leave you craving all your favorite desserts. Jules works at the local diner and she is known for her wonderful baking. We hear on multiple occasions about her desserts and by the sound of it, they are to die for. I had a very hard time putting this book down. It was such a fun, fast and easy read! I felt the descriptions were wonderful. I was able to put myself in the characters shoes and feel what they were feeling. We got to see both Jules and Blake's thoughts throughout the book. It's not very often that we get to hear from both the main character's point of view.
Blake and Jules haven't seen each other in 8 years. Blake and Jules ended on bad terms and they are both wondering what happened all that time ago. When fate brings them back together, they have to face the past and what tore them apart. I was completely hooked and wanted to keep reading to find out where life was going to lead them next! If you want to know what happens with Blake and Jules, read this book. You won't be disappointed!
Kimberly Kincaid writes contemporary romance that splits the difference between sexy and sweet. When she's not sitting cross-legged in an ancient desk chair known as "The Pleather Bomber", she can be found practicing obscene amounts of yoga, whipping up anything from enchiladas to éclairs in her kitchen, or curled up with her nose in a book. Kimberly is a 2011 RWA Golden Heart® finalist who lives (and writes!) by the mantra that food is love. She has written two digital novellas, Love On The Line and Drawing The Line, about hot cops and sexy chefs, with a third novella, Outside The Lines, due this summer. She is also thrilled to have collaborated on a Christmas anthology with Donna Kauffman and Kate Angell, titled The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap, to kick off her Pine Mountain foodie series with Kensington this October. Kimberly’s first full-length novel, Turn Up the Heat, will follow in February 2014. She resides in northern Virginia with her wildly patient husband and their three daughters.
